nvidia / X reports wrong display size
I have a 1440x900 19" widescreen monitor.

When I do


xdpyinfo | grep dimensions
I get dimensions : 381x301 mm

when It should be 411x263 millimeters.

when I play a 4:3 aspect dvd with xine it is stretched.

Seems that even when I specify in xorg.conf the right displaySize, it gets ignored.

So is this an X server problem , or an nVidia driver problem?

I have the latest nvidia drivers and 7100 GS card.
